LGBT issues should be taught in every subject, campaign group says

LGBT issues should be taught in every subject, campaign group says
Children as young as five could be taught about LGBT issues in every subject under plans proposed by a campaign group.
Rights group Stonewall believes teachers should tell children about lesbian, gay and transgender issues in classes such as Maths and Design.
According to The Times, Stonewall suggests that same-sex couples be used to teach children to count in maths lessons, with possible questions including: “How many biscuits are left at Fatima and Shanika’s wedding?”
In design and technology lessons, Stonewall says teachers should use the rainbow flag to help 5 to 7-year-olds understand the meaning of colours.

In computer science, Stonewall suggests pupils could design a dress for Bailey, a boy who dreams of being a girl and is the main character in a picture book called 10,000 Dresses.
Stonewall’s guidance has been sponsored by the publisher Pearson and the Government Equalities Office (GEO) from a £1m grant awarded to LGBT organisations.
The group said: “Our new guide, Creating an LGBT-Inclusive Primary Curriculum, is a free voluntary resource for primary school teachers who want to make their classrooms inclusive and accepting of all young people.” 
It comes just a week after a judge permanently banned parents from demonstrating against LGBT education outside a primary school in Birmingham.
The ban, handed down at the High Court in Birmingham on Tuesday, includes an exclusion zone surrounding the city’s Anderton Park Primary School.
The Department for Education and the city council also welcomed the judge’s decision.
The legal bid had been opposed by protesters, along with an interim ban first granted at the same court in the summer.
